Do you remember that Christmas when…

12/17/2021 (Permalink)

This time of year brings fond memories for most of us, maybe a wish and prayer for better times that may be fading from our community Covid memories.  Among those memories are often the sights, sounds, tastes and fragrances of the Holidays:  wood burning in the fireplace, scented candles bringing ambient light to the rooms where loved ones gather, turkey roasting in the oven, cookies baking on well-seasoned pans used from generation to generation – yes, I still have some of my grandmother’s pans! – bells ringing on street corners, snow-covered lawns and fields and rooftops…

We pray that your memories are not those of tragedy.  We certainly know some who have lost loved ones during the holiday season.  We hope that you know they would like to see you remember them in family traditions, joyful carols and festive gatherings.  Know that they wish to see your joy, peace and love for one another.  Honor their memories in festive celebrations, laughter and good cheer!

We also know too well that disasters know no holiday!  There may be memories that are not so fond:  sparks from a fireplace that lit the carpet; candles left unattended that sent burning wax flaming across wooden tables and fabric table coverings; cookies, cakes or pies left in the oven that burned – it doesn’t just happen to Sharon Weiss (memes); candy making that overflows the pot, lighting a fire as it spills over the burner on the stovetop; the turkey fryer that cooks the siding on the house; Christmas decorations with damaged cords that start electrical fires; fresh-cut trees that have been allowed to become too dry and seem to spontaneously combust.  We hope that none of these things have ever happened to you to cause fire to your homes or businesses.  We pray that they will not happen to you this year or ever in the future.

Please be safe in enjoying your holidays!...  But know that we are always there 24/7/365 to take your disaster and make it “Like it never even happened.”
